Nelson Child Care

Child Care

The Child Care program is designed for children ages 21/2 to 5 years old. All children MUST be toilet trained before they will be accepted. The program hours are from 7:30am until 5:30pm. The preschool program is from 9:00am until 11:15am.

The program strives to provide a cohesive balance of structured and free play opportunities, as well as active and quiet times.

Adelaide can’t wait to go to the pre school program every week. She enjoys showing me all the art work she has done and playing outdoors. The program is great, educators are amazing and most of all my daughter loves it!
